Big Red Challenge! Email Mr. Powell the score of this weekends Nebraska Cornhuskers game to win a pack of Big Red gum on Tuesday
Today was all about DNA. We completed our first round of genetics notes as well as watched the video below about what is DNA and what does it do. Tomorrow we start NWEA testing, which we will finish Thursday. Friday we will continue exploring genetics.
In class today students took a short test over what we've done in class so far. Then we drew diagrams showing the levels of organization in an organism. Starting with the body of an organism going down to single alleles, this diagram shows increasing complexity in living creatures.
Today students graphed their paper airplane data and completed their lab questions. Tomorrow they will write their lab conclusion and begin their new unit, Genetics.
